Sudbury Water Meadows


  • Running along the River Stour from Brundon down to the Football Ground, Sudbury Suffolk, CO10

  • Open access but check for flooding

The stunning water meadows surround the River Stour and incorporate rough tracks along the meadows themselves, closely following the Stour and the disused Sudbury-Bury railway which can be walked. Mill pools, paddling areas, duck feeding ponds, boating lakes, weirs and beautiful places to stop, picnic or visit for a meal (The Mill Hotel), the meadows are beloved to all of us who grew up here.

Sudbury sits close to the River Stour on the Suffolk Essex border. It is a delightful market town surrounded on three sides by its famous water meadows and rolling hills. A Suffolk wool town famous for its historic links with Thomas Gainsborough and Simon of Sudbury. It is also the commercial heart for many local villages, with their own unique charms.
